DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

With reference to FIG. 1, a preferred embodiment is shown of the present invention, which is a two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 including an electrical box 22 and a trim plate 24. The electrical box 22 of the recessed electrical box assembly 20 is depicted in alignment against a stud 26 to which it will be secured by captive fasteners 28. Two conventional duplex outlets 30 and a complementary conventional faceplate 32 are shown in alignment with the electrical box 22 to be connected thereto.

Referring to FIG. 2, the electrical box 22 includes an open front 34, two pairs of opposing sidewalls including a pair of opposing vertical sidewalls 36 and a pair of opposing horizontal sidewalls 38, and a rear wall 40 defining an electrical enclosure 42 therein. The sidewalls 36 and 38 include a front edge 44, inner surfaces 46, and outer surfaces 48. The sidewalls 36, 38 include a forward portion 50 and a rearward portion 52 with the forward portion 50 of the sidewalls extending laterally a greater distance than the rearward portion 52 of the vertical sidewalls 36. As shown in FIG. 3, the electrical box 22 further includes connection points 54 for securing one or more electrical devices (not shown) in the electrical enclosure 42.

With reference to FIG. 4, the electrical box includes one or more ribs 56 extending outward from and longitudinally along the outer surface 48 of the vertical sidewalls 36 and a flange 58 extending laterally at the front edge 44 of the sidewalls 36, 38 of the electrical box 22.

As shown in FIG. 5, the electrical box 22 includes one or more alignment tabs 60 extending along the outer surface 48 of at least one of the sidewalls 36, 38. The ribs 56 extend rearward from the forward portion 50 of the vertical sidewalls 36 and longitudinally along the vertical sidewalls 36. The ribs 56 include a forward edge 62 that is planar with the vertical sidewalls 36. The alignment tabs 60 include a rear edges 64 that are planar with the front edge 44 of the electrical box 22.

With reference to FIG. 6, one or more of the opposing sidewalls 36, 38 of the electrical box 22 include one or more recessed areas 66 therein. The recessed areas 66 include a recessed wall 68 thereon. The connection points 54 include bosses 70 molded integrally within the electrical box 22. The connection points 54 are offset a distance D1 rearward from the front edge 44 thereby recessing an electrical device (not shown) by distance D1 from the open front 34 of the electrical box 22. A lateral wall 72 extends between and connects the rearward portion 52 and forward portion 50 of the sidewalls.

As shown in FIGS. 7 and 8, the recessed electrical box assembly includes a mounting arrangement 74 for securing the electrical box 22 to a stud 26 or similar support. The mounting arrangement 74 includes one or more fastener retaining bosses 76 on the flange 58 of the electrical box 22 and a captive fastener 28 held frictionally within each of the fastener retaining bosses 76. As shown in FIG. 8, the bosses 76 align the captive fasteners 28 along an axis 78. The axial orientation along axis 78 orients the captive fasteners 28 outward of the front edge 44 of the sidewalls 36, 38. The captive fasteners 28 are preferably at an angle θ1 of 35 to 55 degrees with respect to the front edge 44 of the sidewalls 36, 38.

With reference to FIGS. 11A-11B, the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly of the present invention includes a dividing arrangement 80 for dividing the electrical box 22 into separate high and low voltage enclosures. The dividing arrangement 80 includes a panel 86 and channels 82 on the inner surfaces 46 of opposing horizontal sidewalls 38 of the electrical box 22. Although FIGS. 11A and 11B depict the channels 82 in the horizontal sidewalls 38, it should be understood that the channels could also be formed on the inner surfaces 46 of the vertical sidewalls 36 if preferred. Placing channels 82 on the horizontal sidewalls 38 divides the electrical enclosure 42 into side-by-side smaller enclosures 84 as shown in FIG. 11B. Placing the channels 82 on the vertical sidewalls 36 would divide the electrical enclosure 42 into smaller upper and lower enclosures (not shown). As shown in the sequence depicted in FIGS. 11A and 11B, the dividing arrangement 80 includes a panel 86 that is slid within the channels 82 to divide the electrical enclosure 42 into two smaller enclosures 84. The dividing arrangement 80 divides the electrical box 22 into separate high and low voltage enclosures 84.

As shown in FIGS. 9-12, the panel 86 is substantially T-shaped and includes a main portion 88 having two sides 90 and two wings 92 extending from the main portion 88. Tabs 94 extend from both sides 90 of the wings 92 at their outer corners 96. The tabs 94 provide a thickened cross section that enables the panel 86 to tighten when pushed within the channels 82 to divide the electrical enclosure 42 into two separate enclosures 84 (see FIG. 11B).

With reference to FIGS. 13-15, the trim plate 24 is provided with the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly of the present invention to provide an attractive cover for covering the electrical box 22 including the fastener retaining bosses 76 (see FIG. 1). The trim plate includes a peripheral sidewall 98 and a flange 100. As shown in FIGS. 16 and 17, the peripheral sidewall 98 of the trim plate 24 is of a slightly smaller size than the forward portion 50 of the sidewalls 36, 38 of the electrical box 22, thereby enabling the peripheral sidewall 98 of the trim plate 24 to be telescopically received within the forward portion 50 of the sidewalls 36, 38 of the electrical box 22.

Referring to FIG. 1, the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 of the present invention includes a fastening arrangement 102 for securing the trim plate 24 to the electrical box 22. The fastening arrangement 102 includes an aperture 108 in the trim plate 24, a bore 104 in the flange 58 of the electrical box 22, and fasteners 106 for securing through the aperture 108 of the trim plate 24 into the bore 104 of the electrical box 22. The fastening arrangement 102 ensures that the trim plate 24 is secured flush against the front edge 44 of the sidewalls 36, 38 of the electrical box 22.

For understanding the operation of the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 of the present invention, the reader is referred to FIG. 1. The electrical box 22 portion of the electrical box assembly 20 is first aligned with a stud 26 by placing a vertical sidewall 36 against a stud 26 and sliding the electrical box 22 rearward until the rear edge 64 of the alignment tabs 60 (see FIG. 7) are flush against the stud 26. The alignment tabs 60 thereby align the front edge 44 of the electrical box 22 so that the box 22 will be approximately flush with the later installed sheet rock 109 (see FIG. 7). After being placed in alignment by the alignment tabs 60, the electrical box 22 is mounted to the stud 26 by driving the captive fasteners 28 into the stud 26. Up to two electrical components, such as the duplex outlets 30 depicted in FIG. 1, can then be secured to the connection points 54 within the electrical box 22 by fasteners 110. A conventional faceplate 32 is then secured to the electrical components with fasteners 112. The trim plate 24 is secured to the electrical box 22 by the fastening arrangement 102 including trim plate fasteners 106 secured through apertures 108 into the bores 104 in the flange 58 of the electrical box 22 to form the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 of the present invention.

The fully installed two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 is shown in FIG. 18. The duplex outlets 30 are recessed within the wall 114. The recessed enclosure 116 between the trim plate 24 and the faceplate 32 is large enough to recess the duplex outlets 30 and the conventional plug ends 117 of connected electrical cords within the recessed enclosure 116. The two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20 therefore protects the plug ends 117 of connected electrical cords from dislodgement.

If desired, the installer can then insert a panel 86, as shown in FIG. 19, to divide the electrical box 22 into separate compartments 84 to accommodate both high voltage electrical components 118, such as the GFCI shown, and low voltage electrical components 119. The panel 86 is simply inserted in the manner shown in FIGS. 11A and 11B, with the tabs 94 securing the panel 86 within the channels 82 of the electrical box 22. As shown in FIG. 19, a high voltage component such as a GFCI receptacle 118 may be installed in one enclosure 84 and a low voltage component such as the standard jacks for broadband cable 119 in the opposite enclosure 84. A complementary Decora-style faceplate 120 and the trim plate 24 are then installed to complete the two-gang recessed electrical box assembly 20. Low voltage components such as jacks for broadband cable, direct TV, surround sound cabling, or phone systems can be installed within the low voltage enclosure.

As shown in FIG. 5, the recessed wall 68 in the electrical box 22 enables the use of electrical fittings or connectors such as the BLACK BUTTONB™ push-in connector 122 for connecting non-metallic cable to the electrical box 22. The BLACK BUTTONB™ push-in connector, available from Arlington Industries of Scranton, Pa., is simply pushed into one of the knockouts 124 provided in the recessed wall 68. The recessed area 66 prevents the push-in connectors 122 from projecting outward from the sidewalls of the electrical box 22 and interfering with placement of the electrical box in locations where space is tightly restricted.

The electrical box 22 and trim plate 24 portions of the two-gang recessed electrical outlet assembly of the present invention are preferably constructed of plastic. In a preferred embodiment, the electrical box 22 and trim plate 24 are each molded in one piece of plastic.

Having thus described the invention with reference to a preferred embodiment, it is to be understood that the invention is not so limited by the description herein but is defined as follows by the appended claims.
